Spooky shows are starting this weekend, including our three picks below. No Utah Halloween is complete without Odyssey Dance Theatre's Thriller; an innovative, creepy show starts at the Sugar Space; and Off Broadway Theatre kicks off their newest Halloween show—once again with Dracula vs the villain. Parents, use your own judgment on what's too scary for your kids.
FRIDAY, SATURDAY and SUNDAY
Thriller! By Odyssey Dance Theatre
Thriller is already a tradition for so many Utahns this time of year. More than just the Michael Jackson song, the show includes tons of ghoulish dances and music that will mystify, frighten and make you laugh.
These shows usually sell out, so buy your tix asap.
The show runs now through Oct. 8 at the Egyptian Theatre, 328 Main Street, Park City. Or you can see it at Kingsbury Hall from Oct. 12 to 29. It’s also showing at other theaters throughout Utah.
A Tale from the Land of Frightful Dreams
The Rumble Motion Jawbone dance co. sets a spooky Halloween tone with a twisted fairytale-adventure-saga that the Sugar Space describes as beautiful, grotesque, spectacular and disturbing. The show incorporates theater, butoh, circus and modern dance.
It should be an incredible show. One for you and older kids.
The performance goes from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 at Sugar Space, 616 Wilmington Ave., SLC. Shows are at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 on the day of the show. Click here for tix.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
Dracula vs. Jekyll and Hyde at Off Broadway Theatre
Did you see our review on the Off Broadway Theatre’s Forever Dead? Well, the little theater on Main Street keeps the parody comedy coming for the Halloween season with Dracula vs. Jekyll and Hyde (starting tonight).
Dr. Jekyll, a well-respected physician, suspects he might be behind a series of murders that have taken place in London—meanwhile, Dracula is out to snatch the troubled physician’s new formula.
It should be a great time for the whole family.
Hint: Come back to our site for a full review of the show.
The show runs Sept. 30 to Oct. 29—Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Off Brodway Theatre, 272 S. Main Street, SLC. Tickets range from $8 to $16. Click here for tix. http://theobt.org/
